Lightning Storm
    #4413452 - 07/17/05 01:35 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

It took about 100 pictures and a few lightning storms but I finally got a pic of a lightning bolt!  :laugh: :mushroom2:

An insane storm came through Winnipeg tonight and I took about 30 pictures before getting this one....not too bad....Im going to try to get a cooler one next time.

I turned off the flash and just sat there clicking and clicking until the preview screen finally showed a bolt.  Takes forever to catch one  :doh:  Pretty much has to be non stop lightning to have a chance.

An easy way to catch lightning is, if yuou have a camera with adjustable exposure times, set it for the bulb(B) mode. The shutter will then stay open for the whole time you press down on the shutter release button. So just hold it down until a bolt strikes and release it right after. You'll need to put it on the lowest F-stop for the picture. I've been able to catch up to about 10 strikes in less than an hour using this method.

The storm outside is so crazy I could feel the pressure in my ears and they almost pop'd like on an airplane....then suddenly the wind began throwing shit around on my balcany. Its insane out there I got soaked just moving a chair for about 5sec.

I think most people leave the camera lens open until a bolt strikes, rather than just clicking continuously and hoping you catch one... interesting method though.




Why would there be people that have tried but never caught a bolt, or have only caught one if they are using this method though?

I didn't say that everyone knows about it, nor can I guarantee that everyone uses the method I was talking about... which seems to be the same one you stated in your previous post.




Sorry dude. I misunderstood and thought you were talking to me :blush:.  I didn't even check the RE:.
